and it happened once again...

Sorry for my disapperance from blogging I have a good excuse!
Last monday my life changed for ever once again, I am going straight to the point but not all in full detail bc I am still shaken up from it all! 

My husband texted me out of the blue saying he wanted to full fill his dreams of being a porn director, at first I thought he was kidding...NOPE! He got home a little after, I was upset from the texts he sent still he came up stairs so happy bc he has been looking into some more and this is where it all started to go down hill, I got mad and bc I was mad at him he got mad at me?? (is that even right? not to me)
But things got heated up quickly after that, he told me I didnt make him happy or satisfy him and he wanted out; I told him the door was there he packed his stuff and when he was opening the door I told him he would miss this, I did everything to make things better and to make him happy, and once he left I would be packing my stuff and going back to alabama because I do not belong here; he went crazy, I tried calling the police and he grabbed me and scracthed the shit outta me and grabbed my phone and went upstairs and went outside to go to the neighbors to call the police but he through my phone at me and followed me I tried to get outside but I couldn't so I ran upstairs locked the door and thought I was in some horror movie this had to be a dream, about a few minutes after he came to the door saying he was leaving just needed something out of the room for work, I let him in and he went straight to the bedside where our gun is kept got it and once he was walking out of the room he pulled the gun to his head and went to the bathroom and locked himself in...I called 911 and he shot of the door and ran to his truck and left, like 6 cops came and surronded my door and asked me a million and 1 questions and they were on the search to find him and when they did they let him go with the gun with him, the police told me to report all the info to his commander so he would put him away so I would have time to pack my stuff and leave.. I am scared of what he will do he obviously has some issues and he has never been deployed or any heavy training so he cant blame that!

 I am safe... and back in alabama with my family...and waiting for the divorce papers..
Im done with the lies, his selfishness, & the abuse; I don't deserve to live in his misery; i feel like the biggest idiot for giving him the time of day and another chance for now on I will live my life for me and my future and no one will ever be able to take it away and I will do it all with a smile on my face knowing I don't have to deal with it anymore..I am still young and have the rest of my life :)

Letters to God

I just finished the best movie, Letters to God. I have and always will believed in God, 
but never realized some of the things I always take for granted and that would be him...

 This movie was such an inspiration and it showed me to look at life at a different way your not guaranteed tomorrow, live your life to the fullest everyday and have faith in God and pray, I honestly do not have a clue how to, but writing a letter seems in my nature and I would feel more comfortable! Everyone prayers differently and no way is wrong 

If you haven't seen this movie you need to run to the store, rent it or watch it on netflix! One day when i have kids I want them to watch this, amazing true story! 

catching up.

•Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

finding out who my real friends are, and realized friends come and go but family last forever; glad I figured this out early in life... I only have a few friends now and i am okay with that because I choose wisely  :) 

•Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

ok. I am going to do September too because this month is almost over,

im back..

Sorry I have been absent the last few days, aunt flow got the best in me this visit and I was in a funk and had nothing nice to say (or write) I hate aunt flow with a passion she screws me over every time I swear I think she is a man, no actually both! Ok enough about her, I wanna talk about me! Well I am back in a blogging mood yay, I missed writing I kept up with all of you lovely ladies and gents(if your reading this) and am glad to be back! :)  

I have been quite the little miss betty crocker and tried out some new recipes because I was tired of eating the same thing over and over again, i even got tired of mash potatoes if you know me that is one of my favorites... so but omgah amazing recipes, I didn't take a picture (fail..i know) but if you were have smelled these two you would have forgotten too, so forgive me!

But I made a meatloaf, I use to hate it and all of a sudden out of no where I wanted some probably because I heard someone talking about it and googled easy meatloaf recipes so glad I did because this recipe popped up and it is to die for:

and then I finally decided to try my crock pot out that I haven't used in forever and made this: 

Buffalo chicken Sandwhiches, if you ever had zaxby's and tried the kickin chicken sandwhich this is like it i was in heaven my husband and me both made some noises eating this that sounded like bed rocking noises if you know what I mean..hahaha..seriously though it is that great and super easy to make

I think my husband fell more in love with after these recipes I made! 

But I need to rant because my neighbors are pissing me the eff off, they are blaring there music in a four plex umm hello the walls are not sound proof and I do not appriecate my walls vibrating especially when I am studying I already have asked them nicely to please turn the music down because I needed to study and guess what 2 hours later their blaring the shit again, they need to have respect for others, because they are messing with me and I don't play nice especially after asking more than once so the cops are probably going to be called if I can hear it upstairs when I am trying to sleep! ughh has anyone ever had a problem like this? what did yall do?

well I am off to bed hopefully I dont hear them upstairs because the popos will be called and I am pretty sure they are doing drugs because the smoke doesn't smell like cigerattes lol..
and I will be catching up my challenge tomorrow :)

Day 2 and school is...

•Day 02- The meaning behind your Blogger name As some of you know my blog name wasn't always "Keeping up with Courtney", it was "a southern belles way of a life as an army wife", well that name was and still is me, because I am a southern belle and army wife and thats my life, but my blog isn't always about me talking about being a army wife its about me and all of my rambling randomness of my crazy life and being married to a solider and how hectic things can be and are, so that is why I chose "Keep up with Courtney" because you never know what im going to say, and shoot i don't either im random so you are keeping up with my courtney. :)

well I am so excited to say school is over wednesday for my campus classes and then I will only have my online classes to finish...and then I will be a Pharmacy Tech after I pass my national test and find me a job, i am excited! Even though I just wanna be a stay at home mom I guess I need to pop out some kiddos

Hope everyone had a good weekend :)
